An online phone parts supplier ”Etradesupply.com” has posted a replacement screen for the Lumia 928 on its site. The replacement screen is actually larger than the Lumia 920′s by a good 5 mms; but appears to bring back the symmetry in the device that so many of you want. The screen is a Samsung-made 4.5″ Super AMOLED rather than the PureMotion HD+ LCD of the Lumia 920.
OEM Nokia Lumia 928 LCD Screen and Digitizer Assembly
Screen Size: 4.5 inches
Type of Glass: Corning Gorilla Glass
Type of Screen: Super AMOLED
Type of Connector: Clip
1. Nokia has adopted a Super AMOLED screen made by Samsung as the screen for Nokia Lumia 928. This screen is much thinner, lighter than that screen on Lumia 920.
2. At the first glance of these two different digitizer and LCD screen assembles, you will find that the Lumia 928's digitizer and LCD screen assembly looks slimmer than Lumia 920, cause it's 5 mm taller than 920's digitizer and LCD screen assembly.Though Lumia 928's screen is taller, the display area is still the same as Lumia 920, a 4.5 inches display.
3. Another difference you can figure out is that the microphone phone of Lumia 928 is at the bottom of the screen, while that on Lumia 920 is at the bottom side of the phone.
4. when we turn the assembles around, we can easily find out the main difference of these two screens. The LCD screen of Nokia Lumia 920 is an IPS screen which is fitted in a metal frame and the digitizer is attached to the frame with adhesive, while the LCD screen of Nokia Lumia 928 is a whole unit which is an AMOLED screen made by Samsung. We don't know why Nokia quits the IPS screen they used for Lumia 900, but what we know is that the AMOLED screen is much lighter and thinner than IPS screen, which means the space left can be used for larger battery.
